Re: COVID-19 & Education Thread

Most teachers that I know aren't afraid of doing extra work per se, but they do like to have a logical plan. If things become capricious, uncertain, and subject to constant change, they get worried...

Re: COVID-19 & Education Thread

I think the whining the teachers are doing is more because of the uncertainty of the situation, and the orders and directives coming from above them, which they have no control over. If there are 3...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Couldn't agree more. It has been 20 years in the making, at least. 9/11 provided the slippery slope and the point of no return, and COVID has settled it. We're totally fucked. The next 10 years are...

Re: COVID-19 & Education Thread

Totally agree. If this dosen't happen, the kids' minds will really turn to mush, and we'll be in far worse (long-term) shape than the few COVID deaths which might be the result of sending kids back...

Re: How has Covid affected you the most

Good for you! Many people are drinking to abandon during these hard times. The fact that you gave it up basically cold turkey is commendable and says a lot about your self-discipline.

Re: What is your opinion?

Fuck, man do what you want. Everyone these days has to make a statement. This might as well be yours! I'm all about comfort, "socially acceptable" be damned. It's not like you're going around...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Wow, that is quite the story, particularly the nugget that "Unlike other manufacturers, Tesla doesn’t grant us permission to survey its owners in 15 states where it is required"

Re: If a coronavirus/Covid-19 vaccine is developed and approved by late 2020/early 2021, will you get it?

Excellent advice, and analysis. I think the schools will require the vaccine out of legal liability reasons even more than public safety reasons.

Hard to believe that all of the vaccines you list...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

How do we know this for sure, and at such a precise date? Has it been proven 100% as entirely true?

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Doesn't make any difference now, we can't change the past, but it was a kind of reverse racism while it was happening. China, being such an insular and homogeneous country wanted to make itself look...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Right... Another way that companies can charge more for giving less, while using Covid as the justification. Upsetting, but not unexpected.

Re: 'Cannonball' coast-to-coast drive record set amid virus shutdown

Stupid, wreckless, and totally irresponsible.

Let's see if we can revoke his license and get him landed in jail in 25 seconds. That'll teach the entitled asshole.

Re: Samsung bluray players go awol worldwide.

Epic problem for Samsung, with lots of (righfully) angry customers. Way to go! I didn't even realize Samsung had discontinued all BD player manufacturing. Is it a timebomb, or a hack? My guess is...

No need to PAY for any masks. I've gotten mine for free from kindly people, agencies, and stores. In a very real way, this amiable effort has been their "contribution" to the COVID-19 fight. That's...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Disturbing, but not surprising. That pesky part about China not telling the truth. Of course, they won't be held accountable because it's un-PC and "it can't be proven", so obsfucated is their guilt.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I've been "acting like an adult" for over 40 years, and the mandate to wear a mask was not required to be perceived as "adult" in society for all that time. Others have lived and acted responsibily...
